Finally, I get my hands on the adorable Indigo Skirt from J.Crew. Yes, I love denim. It’s not as serious as black nor as high maintenance as white but serves as a great neutral nonetheless. It’s casual, it can be dressed up or down, and matches with just about everything. I own one denim pencil skirt from J.Crew (one that I wore everywhere) that has gotten way too big for me recently and therefore extremely long and shapeless. I wanted something unique, girly, and cute, in a dark wash. I *think* I found it in the J.Crew Indigo Skirt.
The J.Crew website says the Indigo skirt is 15″ long. 15 inches. I really don’t know what J.Crew was thinking, making this skirt so short. Who is their target market? Pre-teens? Women in their target market are young professionals. 15″ skirt is bordering on inappropriate. Desperate for this skirt and finding no other cuter alternative, I thought to myself, it doesn’t look that short on this super tall J.Crew model. Maybe if I sized up a size, I can pull this skirt down a bit further and thereby lengthen it. Did that do that trick? I guess. In this picture, the skirt is sitting at my hips. But it’s still pretty darn short….
I’m still on the fence about this one. The shape is super cute, the material feels substantial, and it’s everything I imagined it to be….just a few inches short. I don’t know if I would even be comfortable bending over. Sure, I can wear it only with tights in the fall/winter or something but for something that’s supposed to be as versatile as a denim skirt, I don’t want to be constrained to one to two seasons of wear only. I know I haven’t found many reviews online of this skirt, so hopefully this helped someone. Get the Indigo Skirt from J.Crew here for $69.50.
